SUMMER IS HERE

With the weather finally warming up here in Vancouver, we have been indulging in many picnics. Even though I have been quoted as saying Just because it is sunny, it doesn’t mean you have to go outside, I do enjoy hanging out in the sun and snacking on great food. All the picnics got me thinking about this gem that I recently came across while digging through the vaults. This is my first printed work, back from when I was ten years old; a full page newspaper advertisement for Canada Safeway. The local paper where I grew up decided to hand over control of an entire edition to the students of my elementary school (ballsy!). Look at that hand-rendered typography, so ahead of my time! Easiest project ever, absolutely zero client revisions and no nosey “creative director” looking over my shoulder! My obvious career path was laid out before me.

I still can’t believe they actually ran it.
Enjoy the Sun!
